Disappointing. Produced by Emile ('What Do You Wanna Make Those Eyes At Me For') Ford and with a quite attractively designed inlay my hopes were high, particularly in view of the band's profile on festivals like Cross Fire. Many of the tracks were bland and super­ficial, the production was flat and uninspiring and the girl lead vocalist failed to inject any real emotion into the songs. This undoubtedly was at least partially due to the fact the lady's voice was not as strong as many rock vocalists I've heard. This shortcoming I found particularly noticeable on "And Tears I Cried". The song deals with God's desire to keep a close and con­tinuous relationship with us and his sadness when we move away from him. The concept the song por­trayed, for me, required a passion in its performance which sadly wasn't there. Too often the band lock into formulaic riffs with little distinction. Overall, however, if like me you're not particularly affluent and have to be especially choosey over the albums you buy, I would give this one a miss
